Elevator Episodes in Seven Genres

The very first review of my story has been posted at Tangent Online and the reviewer did have some nice things to say about my story. :)

How long does it take you to write a short story?

Hi, Patch. Thanks for your first comment. This is not the first time my last name has been spelled wrong. :)

About your question: different stories take different lengths of time - and the length of time is not always proportional to the length of the story. For instance, I wrote the "Elevator Episodes" story in about 30 minutes. On the other hand, "Meaning of Life and Other Cliches", published in Anotherealm in 2005 and later went on to win the Higney Award at Anotherealm and garnered an honorable mention in the Parallax Awards, took about 10 years to be written.

I just ordered your issue from Interzone.

Write longer stories! :D

Anyhoo, I'll keep checking in to see where you're getting published and try to buy the issues to show support for the up-and-comers.
